Rare psuedomorph of royal blue Shattuckite that has replaced Cuprite crystals. This of one of the rarer Tantara psuedomorphs, and one of only a very few I've ever seen. The entire specimen is composed of somewhat flat, interlocking octahedral crystals to 2cm in size. There is an area of Dioptase crystals in the center, some of which are broken. A true rarity!

Loads of leafy Gold atop sparkling white drusy Quartz crystals. Out of an old collection built in the 1960s and '70s. The old label shows a price of $450 (about $3,500 in todays dollars based on inflation alone, not taking into account the dramatic rise in mineral values over the last decade).
